NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo announced it will broadcast interviews with exhibitors, photographers, and other newsmakers at PhotoPlus Expo and WPPI NYC through PPE TV, a video streaming broadcast channel to highlight each day’s events for trade show attendees and those unable to attend this year’s show. PPE TV can be accessed via the Internet at www.photoplusexpo.com on Thursday and Friday, October 27th and 28th. Interviews will be conducted inside the PPE TV broadcast booth located on the WPPI NYC trade show floor in the North Hall of the Javits Convention Center as well as from exhibitor’s booths.
This year PhotoPlus Expo and WPPI NYC includes more than 300 exhibitors and 115 seminars and special events. PPE TV provides attendees, and those unable to attend the show, unprecedented access to all the latest news, exhibitor interviews, and seminar speakers. The Nielsen Photo Group will lead a team of broadcast professionals including Adorama TV and RETV to provide video interviews with keynote speakers and on-site product reviews with leading manufacturers that can be seen online, at the viewer’s convenience. Through PPE TV, PhotoPlus Expo gives attendees an opportunity to see everything they may have missed and also provides a great way for non-attendees to see the latest products, services, and trends in the photo industry.
“We realize that attendees may not have an opportunity to see everything they have on their wish list and created PPE TV as a way to capture many of the highlights at this year’s show for viewing at their leisure,” explains Jeff McQuilkin, Director – PDN PhotoPlus International Conference & Expo. “For those unable to be in New York this week, we hope that PPE TV gives them a good sense of the excitement at the show and a good look at the products and trends going on in the photo industry. With Adorama TV and RETV as our broadcast partners, we know that PPE TV will be a quality resource for photographers long after the show ends on Saturday.”
The PPE TV broadcast team will be posting, tweeting and blogging their way through the showroom floor and conducting interviews from the PPE TV broadcast booth and around the expo. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the broadcast booth to see interviews as they happen.
